Blockade

The act of preventing food, medicine, materials and/or other supplies from entering or leaving a country. A blockade occurs when one country sends its military and sets up a perimeter, disallowing the blockaded supplies from being exported or imported. A blockade is an act of war and is obviously disruptive to international trade.
